"How can we resolve disagreements about
scope of practice?"

"How can we get the hospitalists to be more engaged?"

"Why does our hospitalist program cost so much?"

"What are the best practices in hospitalist scheduling and compensation? "

"What about surgical hospitalists, neurohospitalists, GI hospitalists, and other specialties?"

"What do I need to know about starting a new
hospitalist program?"

 
   
 

As consultants in the field of hospitalist practice management, we’ve helped more than 300 hospitals and hospital medicine groups answer questions such as these.

And as a physician with more than 20 years of clinical practice as a hospitalist and a former hospital executive, we bring unique perspectives and complementary expertise to the task of helping our clients build successful new hospital medicine programs and enhance the effectiveness and value of existing programs.

HOSPITAL EXECUTIVES HIRE US BECAUSE...
   
We have a thorough understanding of the business of hospital medicine.
We emphasize fiscal responsibility and measurable performance.
We provide real quantitative analyses of hospitalist performance, not just soft recommendations.
We are not a staffing firm or a management company. We are an independent consulting firm focused solely on hospitalist practice management. No biases. No conflicting interests.
